Here I am, finally joining to legions of bloggers. My very first blog post! Wow, I feel pressured to make it important in some way, but I'm sure that's a useless feat. Instead, I'll try to be informative. This blog is dedicated to my attempts to not only raise my eleven month old son, who I'll call Baby, but my attempts to help my family by learning to spend less. A year ago, I was in the workforce full-time, working my butt off and making bundles of money. After Baby was born, though, my priorities changed dramatically. Money seemed much less important - being with Baby was the one thing that mattered. Post-pregnancy hormones made it impossible for me to realize the huge change it would mean for our family, but at the same time, I didn't care. I was fully ready to make whatever changes were necessary to take care of my little boy.
So, I am a stay-at-home mommy now, who often doubts her mothering skills, who is trying to spend less and save money, who is trying to improve her cooking skills, and who has an unhealthy addiction to reading and watching reality television. This blog will be me sharing all of these things with all of you who happen to stop by - whether it's my commentary on how I despise shopping at Wal-Mart, but sometimes it makes sense, or my thoughts on the latest book I've read or the latest recipe I've tried.
Stay tuned - I can be pretty funny sometimes and I'll try to be helpful. If I blog about a recipe, I'll share it with you. If I blog about a book, I'll share where to find it with you. If I blog about reality TV, I'll let you know if I'm posting any kind of spoilers.
